Great app..but floating remote? Hi there. This is a great app. But is there a way to lose the floating remote control when viewing 360 videos? It utterly kills the immersion. And yeah, the file system is far too arduous to navigate when i want certain files. These reasons stop me from using the app for most things. Some lighting in the cinema would also be fantastic...down the track.
This is a pretty decent theater app for anyone wanting a cinema experience with their VR HMD. I am using Google Cardboard on a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and it works well. While immersion in the theater setting suffers a little from lack of dynamic lighting and lower quality models and textures, it is still passable. My only major criticisms are the movie selection is a little clunky. Also, having the button to center the screen is nice, but on my phone doing this more than once seemed to trigger a glitch where the entire rendering of the scene disappears and is replaced by solid blue and remains that way forcing me to force kill the app and restart it..All in all I was torn between 3 and 4 stars, but ultimately decided on 3 but anticipate I will have to upgrade that rating in the future. As a small P.S., I would really love to see the addition of a projection booth at the back of the theater. It would just add a little something to the experience.
Not bad Edit: Great job on the last update! Now if you could somehow include an auto-recalibrate feature that has the app recalibrate when you rest the phone down into approximately the initial position you orginally calibrated from, this would be an even better app! And yeah, this needs a better interface!
Thanks for this, it's a fantastic app :) I'm using it on a Wileyfox Storm and the drifting seems to be a non-issue now. In my opinion it is by far the best VR cinema app for cardboard on the market (due to seating select, lighting selection, screen resizing, Youtube integration etc) but my only niggle with it is the file selection system. Also, thanks for taking the time to make the feature explanation videos. Not a lot of devs would go to the trouble of doing that. Hope there's another update in the works?
NEEDS TO CHANGE FILE FINDER Nice looking app... But waste of time if can't choose files thru File Explorer... Or a better interface. Having to scroll thru every tiny video the phone makes... Is soul numbing.... And makes this app Useless.
Movies are in wrong aspect ratio Please fix! All movies are forced into 2.35:1 aspect ratio, so almost all movies look too wide. Would not have bought this if realized in time. Cmoar also does this so just as bad. Gear VR Cinema does adjust movies to correct ratio.
2.1.7 fixed drift on most phones or greatly reduced.
2.1.5 fixed 2D/3D theater.
-Calibrate button (helps with drift of some phones)
-Slow play speed
-turned off menu when lock is on
-updated lock direction
-added vr file selection construct
